Gunnjnnw movas le-ft and right 
through this, jumping and kneeling 
where necessary — blasting the

Whh hazards a plenty it's a tough

A level is completed wheri you

• Hacking Awsy one* u^min 

• In CRASH 79 a sup«r 
hacking game called 
Satcom by Atlantis was 
featured on the Powertape — the 
response was $o good that 
Atlantis hafi pul its Original 
tvacklrtg game Supercom on this 
month's tap«! it s slightly easier 
than SMtcom, ao ff that baffled 
you have a go at cracking 
Supofcom straight away!! 

The Govfernmenl have failed to 
tredf 6own the oriminai 
masiermind who is hcWing the 
couniry lo ransom wtih a compuier 
activated nuctear warhead. No one 
knows where the coniputer or 
wart>ead are located. Even if they 
did. the task of shutting down the 
computer is almost impossible The 
only information you have is an 
incomplete telephone number 
supplied by a CIS agent who was 
terminaiad whilst transmitting what 
h»a had discovered. The nurriber is 
818-771?*? i?? means there are two 
other digits missing). 

Supercom plays very much like 
Satcxm), so if you ve cracked that 
you should know how to play this 
styte of game. For those who 
missed it here's a run down of what 
you do 



When Supercom has loaded the 
program generates its secret Codes 
— these atter with every game 
(unless youVe playing a saved 
game) . When ri has done ttmt your 
working screen is displayed, 
offering five modes of operation . 
The first rnode allows you to phona 
anottief computer, the second is 
the link analysis which generates 
data to the jnformation txjaid, mode 
three is the Information board, (he 
fourth i$ the s«ve/load facility and 
mode five displays your phone bill 
(walcti your money trickle a way f I). 

Or>ce you Ve dialled into another 
compute the link analyser gratis as 
much infonnation as It can So if 
you dont know the complete phone 
number (just make two digits up in 
\h& case of the number from ihe 
CI5 agent) or a password, let ttw 
phone dial and when yo<i can'i gel 
any further cut the call. Put the link 
analyser into action ai>d any clues it 
can provide will be displayed on the 
information tKjard. Virtuafty all the 
codes can be cracked with the help 
of the link analyser. 

There's only one lip we can offer 
and that's make sure to make good 
use of modes two and three as 
they're very important to solve 
problems. All controls are through 
the keyboard using the appropriate 
keys to select options and input 
information Happy hackmgll

Soflwlir6!! 



• Mflfngo Jones is a space 
arctiaeologjst and a pretty 
good or>e at that. While 
venturing into unknown space 
Mango stumbles upon the ptanet 
Shela flota, a strange place 
Intubited by intelligent bananas 
but In terrible danger of being 
invaded by the Darkk Empire! 

Shela-Roia is surrounded by 
Mvftfl other wortds. all of 
which are occupy by ihe Darkk 
Empire — there's only one thing for 
it: taite your ship onto each planet 
and destroy it, and wipe out the 
Darkk Empire. Succeed and you 
get the Oo^lum staiue, a priceless 
artifact bringing you fame and 
fortune. 

Mango Jon^ is a two-part muKi- 
load so keep an eye on ihe screen 
for prompts. Whan the first part has 
loaded stop the tape and a menu 
pops up afier the credits have run 
through From here select control 
method, movemwit sensitivity 
mission briefing — tfw fourth opiior 
initiates the second load. Start the 
tape at the prompt and wart for (he 
game to load. 

When the second part has loaded 
you re ready to play. Follow the on 
screen instructions lo select which 
of the seven planets to bogm your 
mission on and prepare to tse 
teieported, Your ship is equipped 
with a laser cannon and a supply of 
bombs with which to defeat the 
Dariik Empjre. 

8last enemies as you see them, 
and destroy ground installations as 
you fty past by dropping bombs 
Beware: when an installation 
explodes a shower of highly 
dactngerous debris er>guifs the 
;>laying area. If you're hit by falling 
debris the energy counter drops, if it 
reaches ;efo us game ower. Help is 
at hand — pick up special objects 
and be rewarded with a bonus. 

Clear the planet of ail enemy 
■installations before progressing to 
the next, and have a lootin shootin' 



good time while doir^ it!

from Theo Dc . .,4^9 in 
Qrfrftcein 



• Sanding you best wishes 
from sunny Greece is 
GRASH'a new found EuriK 
cli^um Theo Develegas. Latt 
month you played his crary 
shoot-'em-upSojfsfJs and now i"'5 
time to battle with your brains 
and play his addictive action 
puzzle game Tafking Hedxl 

If you want a plot, read it on the 
iniro screen ~ here's how to 
play the game lis a bii incky to 
begin with so read carefullyl VVhai 
you re kxikmg at here is a sfklJng 
block puzzle game, played against 
the dock, as you attempt to 
rearrange e^hi jumbled up picturts 
to form laces of the famous 

Having selected the options fron 
the opening menu you're into the 
game. On the main playing area 
you II see the complete face of thf 
first famous person - but the 
second you hit a key it all jumbles 
up and you have to relorm ti. 

There are five empty «quarea 
and 25 squares thai are part of tht 
main image, image u^uaras: the 



i 



etnply squares bogin lin«d up alor>g 
the bottom of the pSayinQ area. You 
can orjy (this !S very important) 
Tnove ar imager s(}uar<a into &{\ 
«tt)0f square'. Dchi 1 tfy just 
swapf^irig a ooup)« of image 
squares around' that wmt work. 
You can only move an bnagB 
square if ttiero's an emply stjuare 
b^ide it. Using the control he^ 
seleoi the image square you wart 
to move by pressing Am, iww 
continue holding tiro down, and 
wtiite doir>g ttiat press Ihe key 
conaaponding to tim dif ection you 
want Ow move ttie ima9e tHoch in. 
So. i^ you vvant to move an image 
square into an empty block to the 
right, go to the image square, hold 
down fire, press right aod rl has 
moved, swapping places with the 
empty square. Sounds compJicated, 
but It's simplfi when you get the 
hang of it. 

n't not an ea&y game but to he^p 
youthare's a small copy or the 
playing area in the status panel, top 
rigtithand side ot the screen. Here 
aH the irnage blocks are numtMsred 
1 to £5 so you know exactly where 
dach Ofte goes. Beginners are 
fecomn>ended to f^y the game 
paying very close attention, if not 
total attention, to this mmi playing 
area, it won't take long to master -

PACKAGE PLEA 



Dear Lloyd 

We all hate piracy and the one 
Lhing to defeat it is marketing. 
Having spent £ 10. what do we 
get apart from a good game? Vou 
lock aiound the $h(3pa at records 
The sleeves look good and tell 
you about the produci We nijsi 
have more info about theganiu 
with ii and more aiiiaciive and 
neat boxed -cassette holders with 
ii. So come on softwaie houses? 
PhU Wain, Northampton NN2 
6JU. 

I've cut moat of PbU's letter 
becauMt it was going over old 
tlUanes, but Ms point reganllng 
■Mckaging is w orthy of note. 
Buyers do get extra value for 
money from adidXttonal sleeve 
rtotes or fT«o]>j(°s wittiin the 
packs, making the product 
appear a better buy than just a 
box, tntav and ccasaette. C'mon 
software liouae^^ — include 
details of the pirogrammers, 
anything that imaltes^ the 
package a morse essentia) thing 
to have — If yoiu're pushing out 
just a game in ia hOK. what's to 
stop people pirraimg? They 
won't miss out on anything.

Boftwarc houses are booking 
ads for ga.mes they hope to

BLEEi 16K! 



Dear Lloyd 

1 have a 16K Si^ectrum. and t 

cant get games for it So. dof s 

anyone have some games th^y 

would like to $el] in my area? 

Could CRASH put any 16K games 

on the tape? 

S Body cote, 2 Lwoberd Avenue. 

Shepshed. Loughborough 

Leicestershire IE 12 9QH 

The only 16K game 1 can 



and unfortunately lost most of my 
tapes. I was grief stricken as all 
my tavuunte games were among 
them Being very disheartened I 
put my Speccy away. 

About four months ago my 
children told me about these 
computer inagaames they had 
seen in the newsagents with free 
games tapes. ! couldn't believe it 
at first so I went to look for 
myself. 1 spotted CRASH. I 
bought a copy and I'm very glad 1 
did. 

I found the games were ter rilic 
(I loved K^tushu) and the reading 
was mterestmg and fun, on the 
whole it was very good value for 
money. 1 was overjoyed to find 
that not only was it possible to " 
buy bac^ copies of this great mag 
but some of the tapes contained 
games from ray ongmal collection

Lots of lushiouft \\p% for you thia lasue. tt s been quite t 
acrapo to get this lot (ogelhcr, actually. Luckily I found a 
tlecr«t stas^ of letters which had dropped down the back of 
iny desk (phew!). Come on everyonSt get tipping and 
mapping all the talesi releases: \ hate Sitting around 
twiddling my thumbs. 

So what is there (or you to get your peelers around this 
month then? I've got tips tor Vendetta, Back To The Future tl 
and GfBdiator plus some handy maps for Bioodwycfr, What 
more could you want? 



A few tips for the fssue T9 cover 
game, Gtadtator ffom Domarih. If 
you're fir^ding it hard to slash up 
your (oes then JoUi\ Mitct5o!l from 
Ooncaster will lend a helping 
hand, He completed (he game in 
just an hour! 

I 1. Select the two- pointed dagg^. 

2. Select a uictent (that s one of 
ihose ihree prof<ged pointy 
things) 

3. Select the two-p»nted dagiger 
again* 

4- Stan 

5. Move forward hut try to dodge 



the other player 

6. Keep mowng forwaifd unhi iNe 
other ptayer turns around 

7. Move back a bit. get behind ih« 
pl^av^ without him turr^ing 
around a(|ain arxl stab h«m 

B, If he does turn around 90 back 
to pdfll five. 

9. Keep stat»tMng him liy sliding 
Still with the border nashing. 

10. When t^ energy has gone 
move batk so tie dies. 

11 . Do this on every round 

1 Z. The tjets, well III teave this to 
you I can I tell '^ou 
everylhingi 



S ATCOM 




Continuing on from the tips 
printed when this game was on 
the cover cassette are this lot 
from Chris Dand ot Surrey^ 

You should now be m posession of 
a list of phone numbers (Stole I hem 
all down. Thsfe's no point diaintg 
NASA as you can't crack ihe code 
ussng Ihe logic analyser If you dial 
CON you gel a systefn overkiad 
hence the name. So dial TUL- 
Terminat© the phone link and work 
ool the code as you d(d for Global 
AimtMpherics. Re-dtal and enter the 
code Make a note of wtnch satellite 
has had exif a equipment fitted 
Return to the conlrol screen 

Dial LlONf, terminate ihe phone 
link and work oui the code. Dial 
LION and enter the code Make a 
rro^e of ihe AD Countdown code. 
Return to control. 

Dial CLB. This bit had me 
confused for a while there was 
nothing but an advart for Cameo 
Laser Refractors but it all 
became ctear at the end. Note 
down the colour order of the four 
bars or cokHXS (le. red, green, 
purple and triue), then return to 
SatCom control 

Now dial CEL, Work out the m<iB. 



re-dial and entet it You'll get two 
questions answer the first one N 
and then Y You'll be ^iveii Ihe code 
to get into NASA But lhe*e's more. 
The little quirk talked about is that 
Ihe number is actually wrrtien 
backwards, so to gel into NASA ywj 
have to reverse the code [54321 
would become 12345J 

Dial NASA and entef tt>e 
reversed code Then enter Ihe 
correct satellite (you shoukf have 
noted it down) Now enter tt>e Auto 
Destruct Countdown code P^ess 
SPACE twice 10 relurn to SatCkim 
Work out the code Repeal ihe 
procedure fw the next I wo codes 

You'll th«n face a display showing 
the satellite raang around the 
heavens. You must arrange the 
coloured t)Jc>chs in Ihe correcl 
sequence lo destroy it I did it by 
random key pressing and Stwirting 
very loudly at the compuierf It's 
easier if you put m the colours fnSm 
Ihe Cameo advert, but put the last 
colour first and work up, 

All things in the cofrenct order, ihe 
satellite will explode and you II have 
finished ihe game I've seen some 
boring ertd of game messages but 
thts lakes the biscuilf

programmer of the game, Ian 

Colder is here to put the record 

straight. 

Wf^at you've found is not a program 



(auil but a trap for [be greedy" The 
instructions should say not coJHect 
aa the (ftwels but collect the 
reauirect numtjer of j6wB)s . 
Sorrietimes not aH the (ewete are 
requited but collecting extra ones 
Will gat you rnoie points. 

Level two of thte g^e is made up 
of ^4 jewels all o( which you can 

liect eKcept one. you can guess 
wnich one itiat is! Of these only 50 
are needed To gel you lo !h& next 
level (See ttie number m the bottom 
right ol the screen} 

You should be atile to get most of 
:he 53 diamonds fairty easily. 
excepi for four diamonds m a box 
;owards the bottom ol the top left 
quarter of the level (see diagram) 
You have lo use the bomb correctly 
to gel into the box. Do not ffll Uie 
tc^ two dian^wnds imrtiediffieiy 
When you drop the bomb, arrange 



for It to explode al the poinl marked 
with an X Do this by folkwing tlhe 
arrowy — go verticatty ddwn to Ithe 
X. cottect the diamond tl^en move 
up to the bomb and get out of thie 
way.

Lots of fight<!r plane action in 
lhi$ action packed game- So 
much action in fact, you can 
hardiy do without these tips from 
a mystery person who lives at 47 
London Road. Newark. These 
tips work on levels one to five, 

Jus', hi '001 a tew planes, then switch 
ui air 10 ground rriiasiSes and use ail 
of them. After that just switch (o 
heat seekers and keep dodging 
bullets . The Apache will soon arnve 
iust dodge ali its missiles and 
launch your heat se«tef , TNs 
missile wiil automaliically home in 



on ihe helicoptef and bfaw it up, 
Tliere should only be one Apache 
to aacti level, but just m ^tse, 
always cofiecl more heal seehn^s. If 
you re lucky enough to gel a 
nuclear warhead i>efore you come 
to a chopper, save it to use against 
it this Will give you extra points 

Always coHeci aU the parachutes. 
Whenever a helcopter isn i near, 
blast enemy planes, and on bonus 
levets (ust sit still, the parachutes 
offer extra points Vou musi always 
kmp moving so tanks can't lock on 
loyou

HINTS AND TIPS 

Some places will l>€ protected wrh

and you'll see the puz^e to sotve it. 
Put the lowest number first then the 
seomd highest and so on. You do 
not need to collect the bomb, Just 
stand on tf>e pad A telepoher is Ike 
a pad but ii has a roof. If Ihe wonran 
member of your crew is not in thG 
place stie usually is. |ust look 
around she It be on the opposite 
part o( the ship, past some metal 
robots 

You may need more shields on 
youf way than the ones you've get. 
so look around for them You neei 
all four keys, and take alt the jterrB 
you come across To open a lock#d

exactly what's happened. The 
best of the maps and tips for the

seiliing them sofnelhJng of yiours 



(make sure it's not som«fthiiig you'll

2. Use tfie exchange option (with 
empty Iransfef slot] lo gel 



an 



j expefisive dems lor free 




3. Sometrmes the paralyse spetJ 
doesn't work: this is becau^ you 
cast It first. Make sure you cast it 



last or on its own for it lo wofk 
property.
